    You should use a password manager. I like KeyPass and KeyPassDX, but other than encouraging open source, I can't comment on which is best.
  • Securing your crypto wallet in a way that gives respect to what cryptography actually is

    My preferred password manager is Bitwarden, which is open-source and zero-knowledge (as in, if you lose your master password, even the company can't get it back for you, since they don't have any "master key" on people's password databases). Another solution is KeePass, which is as free and open-source as you can get (the risk is that you have to figure out cloud storage and sync yourself). Some people even use both in tandem, preferring one to back up the other in some doomsday scenario.

  • I Hate Password Rules
    8 projects | | 16 Nov 2021
    What cannot be ignored is the fact that many people will attempt to use the same password for multiple sites if given the chance.

    Furthermore, some of those shops may contain identifiable information which could be problematic.

    Personally, i take a slightly different approach: i don't care about almost any of my passwords... because they're randomly generated!

    KeePass gives you very nice choices in regards to this, when i write down a new account into the password protected DB for a site that I'm about to use, it allows me to both generate a random password for it, as well as specify additional generation rules if needed (e.g. longer or shorter).

    That way every password is unique and reasonably secure. In combination with Nextcloud and regular backups to another HDD (and manual ones to SD cards) the password safe is also persisted across my own devices and other mediums, whilst having an even longer password of its own, the only one that i need to memorize (and write down on a piece of paper that i could optionally give to someone I trust, since i once forgot my phone's lock screen pattern years ago).

    Here's more info about KeePass:

    This, when coupled with separate e-mail accounts (e.g. one for professional matters, a few for increasingly more spammy or throwaway purposes) and something like uBlock Origin and a VPN does make my online browsing experience a bit more tolerable and secure.

  • Best Password Manager for Android by integration and speed (ignoring the security aspect)

    I created a password database with KeePass. Saved my passwords, then copied the database to a cloud provider (encrypted file, so they can't sniff in), and linked that on my phone (Keepass2Android), on my PC.
  • A wholesome story about helping my family
    1 project | | 8 Nov 2021
    If you have a firesafe for family documents or similar, you could do what me and my father do, we keep a record of our passwords (or in my case, my laptop password and a recovery password for my Bitwarden Cloud password database) inside a database file that you open with a program called "Keepass" on a USB disk, along with a copy of the installer, that sits in the safe labelled up, so in the event either of us dies, we have a way to access an encrypted database of that person's passwords so they can get into the machine or any web accounts and recover personal data and close accounts. Each USB has an unlock password that only we know so the password files are safe but can be accessed in an emergency

    Use a password manager. Use Bitwarden for browser/phone integration and cloud storage, or use KeePass for extra security. Use it to generate a strong password and memorize it, then make that as your master password; don't write it down anywhere, but if you absolutely must make sure it's on actual physical paper without an explanation (as in, what it unlocks) and stored in a safe place at home at all times, never ever take it with you anywhere and never ever, ever leave it by any computer—this may seem like paranoia, but it's not; I have several reasons why if you care to ask. Use the password manager to generate strong passwords for your existing accounts, and reset your passwords on those accounts. Then use it to generate strong passwords from now on. Then use it even when it's inconvenient until you have memorized the master password and generated and stored all your passwords through it and it is second nature to use.
